Curated by Thomas K. Carpenter

The end of the world comes with a BANG!, a sword thrust, and a whole bunch of kick-ass heroines.

Don't lie. If you're like the rest of us. You've harbored secret desires about surviving the end of the world as we know it. Either you've wanted to be one of the women in these books, or have them at your side while you've faced down hordes of zombies or demons ravaging the countryside. The apocalypse is the ultimate test of your survival skills, plus you don't have to worry about finding parking spots anymore.

I'm curating a new Women of the Apocalypse bundle for StoryBundle, a remarkable collection of nine pulse-pounding novels by an amazing group of authors. As always, at StoryBundle, you name your own price—whatever you feel the books are worth.

In these nine tales, the apocalypse unfolds in nine different ways. Do you prefer aliens or zombies? Would you like a sudden end, or a slow slide into the collapse? Is a little romance in your future or do you not have time while you're kicking down doors and chopping off heads? The only choice you don't get to make is who's the one saving the world, or in this case, what's left of it. So grab a can opener and your favorite weapon, because the end never goes quietly.

The Women of the Apocalypse bundle runs for three weeks only. This is a great deal, and a great way to pick up a batch of books while you're digging your personal Judgment Day bunker. – Thomas K. Carpenter
